Nikon India has launched the world’s lightest DX-format lens— the AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80MM f/2.8-4E ED VR—which is bound to enrich the photography experience. This 5x zoom lens with an aperture of f/2.8 combines functionality and compact packaging, which is handy for street and travel photography.
A mix of three optical elements like the Nano crystal coat, aspherical lens and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) lens elements work in tandem to provide superior image quality along with reduced ghosting and chromatic aberration. The lens has been incorporated with a Vibration Reduction (VR), which provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster.
Kazuo Ninomiya, Managing Director, Nikon India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Building on the legacy of Nikon’s extensive range of Nikkor lenses, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR combines quality, versatility and performance. Permeated by insights of consumer’s evolving needs, this highly versatile Nikkor lens has been especially designed to empower photographers to explore their potential in capturing beautiful images and videos.”
Sajjan Kumar, Vice President – Imaging Division, Nikon India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Nikon India is keeping its finger on pulse of advancing technology and the launch of the AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR lens stands testimony to it by taking the photography experience further in a smaller and lighter than ever package with renowned Nikkor optics and refined technology. Some significant advancement like the built-in VR system and electromagnetic aperture mechanism has yielded the expected quality and durability to present the lens as a welcoming addition for Nikkor lens series.
